PHP 7.2

PHP 7.2 will go end of life on 30 Nov 2020

PHP 7.2 goes end of life (EOL) on the 30th November 2020 meaning known security flaws will no longer be fixed and sites are exposed to significant security vulnerabilities.

It is important to update them to a newer version. We would recommend updating to either:

  • 7.3 supported until 06 December 2021
  • 7.4 supported until 28 November 2022

As with any upgrade you will want to test your site on the new version before migrating. You may need to get your developers to update some code, check plugins and app versions for the new PHP supportability:

PHP 8.0.0 is due for general availability launch (GA) target of 26 Nov 2020. An early test version is available now but please DO NOT use this version in production, it is an early test version.

Upgrade from PHP 7.2 before the 30th November 2020.
